The realm of higher education is multi-faceted, and each of those facets comes with its own data challenges. Institutional Research, IT, Admissions, Student Success; dozens of departments that must work in concert to support the success of their students. Dashboard software greatly reduces ad hoc reporting requests, and puts the information your stakeholders need at their fingertips. Dashboards connect to multiple data sources like Excel spreadsheets, iPEDS files, Oracle, MS SQL Server and student information systems (Banner, PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, Colleague) and more, so you can have a clear snapshot of all your key metrics.
